    AN excellent hotel. I was expecting the hotel to feel a little old since it is not new; however, I was surprised that it was very well maintained and room is very comfortable too! Great experience! Thank you Team Kingsbury.

    Had a bad experience at the restaurant

    Had a bad experience with the FB Manager. I went to the restaurant with a friend for lunch but I said I would like to have a sandwich and not the buffet lunch. Before the staff could say anything he said hello hello Madam you can have sandwich and the deli restaurant for 550 rupess. What kind of a manager speak to in house guest like that. This hotel is 5 star. But it's needs slots of improvement.

    Wonderful Holiday

    Had a wonderful experience staying at this hotel. Staff were friendly and smiling and very helpful. Food was very good lots of choices to choose. We tried the Sri Lanka crabs at the Ministry of Crabs and it was fantastic. Would like to visit Sri Lanka again and stay at The Kingsbury Hotel.

    Really awesome place. Not a fan of security checks, but I understand precaution efforts. The honey beach is great, but pricing was super high for what you get. All you hear is construction across the street and sand blowing everywhere. Therefore pricing should somewhat reflect as the rates are drinks were the same cost at a 5star in the US.

    Short stay

    Customer service was amazing and so is the food. The morning buffet is so great. Really close to the Dutch hospital. Rooms are a bit small but the beds are so comfy.
